What is the Financial Modeling Programming Language?

Believe it or not, the main financial modeling programming language is still Excel, and probably will be for quite some time. The main reasons Excel is so common are: (1) it’s automatically installed on virtually all computers, (2) it’s easy enough for anyone to use at a basic level, (3) it’s totally flexible and customizable, (4) it’s easy to audit and follow the analysis (not a “black box”), and (5) it’s the incumbent software!
